    [QUOTE=Big K;377544]i wonder if Sven Hassel's books are true or fiction?

    i've read all of them, great novel but what about the truths?

    do anybody know something about this?

    Pulp fiction I'm afraid using the Third Reich as the canvas. Very superior fiction of that period has been written by H.H.Kirst.

    I have just picked up a copy of Olson's "Tales from a Tin Can".

    Big K, I read Hassell's novels when young and enjoyed them though later I worked out that they were somewhat "gung ho".

    im reading "Red Army" by Ralph Peters, its about a soviet attack of West Germany, it shows the battle only from the soviet perspective, which makes it pretty interesting.

    yess it is a great book but its games are not user friendly.
    Love all, trust a few, do wrong to none; be able for thine enemy rather in power than use; and keep thy friend under thine own life's key; be checked for silence, but never taxed for speech.

    Today I picked up a copy of "Stalin's Ghost" by Martin Cruz Smith. It's been a while since he's published anything. His book "Gorky Park" and the subsequent movie are only time I've seen the dialogue on the screen match the book verbatim.

    I was trying to read and understand a 1040X (IRS amendment) and wondering if padded cells are as comfortable as they say they are.

    Then my wife made a 10 minute phone call to Fresno IRS and straightened the whole thing out.
